    I'm from london and I'm planning to apply to the university of Bath for a degree in modern languages however coming from such a large, diverse city, I'm slightly afraid of getting bored there.

    I've never actually been there, I'm planning to head over for an open day but visitng and living are very different.

    I'm not into clubbing but I love live music, festivals, theatre etc. I'm aware of the world heritage sites but what are some other entertainment ?

    What's the diversity like?
    Is it a student friendly city?

    general information woul be much appreciated !

    GRACIAS

    Hello! To start, I have a friend who came from London and he has never said anything about being bored or given off that impression!

    Definitely go to the open day like you said! When I went to mine (2 years ago now) I knew instantly that I Bath was the place for me.

    The clubbing scene definitely isn't as big as London, but with Bristol 15 minutes away on the train you can always go there! I'm not too sure about festivals/theatre to be completely honest - Bath is only a small city though.

    Bath, in my opinion, is a very student friendly city and is very diverse. It is a very beautiful city also (like you said world heritage site), and everyone is super friendly.

    I couldn't recommend Bath more!

    Like the previous post said Bristol is only 15minutes away! And I've heard from many students at Bath that they generally go there for nights out/clubbing
